NVM implies BLK_DEV_NVM so this dependency isn't really needed.

This file isn't part of this series, is it?

I suppose you meant to use
obj-$(CONFIG_NVM_RRPC) += rrpc.o

because otherwise setting NVM_RRPC has no effect.

This states the license is GPL v2.

And (according to include/linux/module.h) the license ident "GPL" states
the license is GPL v2 or later. So either the comment at the top of this
